Building Cloud-Scale Networks Using Open Fabric Architectures
Several technology inflection points are coming together that are fundamentally changing the way networks are architected, deployed and operated both in the public cloud and private cloud. Requirements are rapidly changing and driving new approaches to building data center networks. Extreme Networks is enabling next generation data centers with open, standards-based, high-speed, inter-connectivity fabric architecture. This white paper outlines Extreme Networks Open Fabric approach to data center networking including high speed connectivity, low latency, multi-path mesh-type connectivity, high resiliency and support for network and storage convergence.
